Animal Hospital

Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

One service you probably won’t have a need for, but is good to know about, is the availability of an animal hospital in Phuket. Stray dogs and cats are running loose all over the island, and they are sometimes hit by cars or motorbikes. If you’re the driver during one of these unfortunate incidents, you have a couple of animal hospitals and vets to choose from.

If you’re an animal lover and you’re coming to Thailand for a vacation, you will probably notice something about the way domestic animals are treated here. In short, not very well. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of Thais who go far out of their way to take care of stray dogs and cats, even birds, lizards, and other animals which are found needing help. If you have a soft-spot in your heart for animals, you’ll have plenty to do in Phuket by helping to feed stray animals who may be just hungry or thirsty, or maybe in need of more – like medical attention at an animal hospital in Phuket.

In addition to animal hospitals in Phuket, there are vets located around the island. Typical cost for caring for a dog or cat which is sick can be about the cost of a large meal for your family. If you genuinely care about animals in need, and can help, you can do a lot of good in Phuket and just about anywhere in Thailand because the problem is all over the country.

If you’re looking to either volunteer, or donate some money to a charity dedicated to helping needy animals in Phuket you could stop at the Soi Dog Foundation.

There are also two elephant sanctuaries at Koh Klok or Nai Thon Beach, you could visit to offer a helping hand or a few Thai baht.
